I believe familes on food stamps want to be healthy,” said Gov. Nikki Haley. “I don’t think they choose to be sick, I don’t think they want to cost the taxpayers money. What I do think is they want guidance. That’s what all of this is about is us saying we’ve got your back. We’re going to support you, we’re going to give you these EBT cards, but we’re also going to tell you how we expect you to eat and live while you’re on it, so that you can get out, get on your own and become stronger because of it.
Being on disability, I do well buying healthy foods on a food stamp diet, buying healthy foods is not that hard. It’s the knowing how to eat healthy that’s hardest. This is why I created the “Healthy Eating” blog from newsletter for great advice for eating healthy. The blog has at fingertips what area of the body needs to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
When you’re poor and don’t know how to eat foods in the right combination especially those that get $10 food stamp on an ebt card, there isn’t much struggling poorer, sick, obese, or thrice can do.
